Brief Biographical Sketch:

About me (in a prime numbered list and no particular order):

2. My future is in numbers but my hobby is in words.

3. I moved from Donetsk, Ukraine to Columbus, Ohio four years ago with my family. I love Ukrainian food and holidays, as well as Russian language and literature. Same goes for the U.S. meals and celebrations and tongue.

5. I adore spending time with my toddler sister. Together we explore the Princess and Bubble Blowing crazes.

7. I take long walks to admire trees, buildings, and clouds. Rock music keeps me company (think Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Blues Traveler, Dire Straits, and many others). I also do yoga.

11. I firmly believe that math is awesome, for the combination of the creative and absolute, and endless possibility for change and innovation. My life goal is to promote the subject to children.

13. I admire Euler the Mathematician, Paul McCartney the Musician, and Mahatma Gandhi the Politician.

17. I collect (non-live) pigs because pigs are marvelous and are ranked number 4 in animal intelligence.

19. π is cool.
